From a racing standpoint a bike is/was a tool not a piece of art per se. Yeah, the high end stuff looks neat but it was function, tempered by affordability, that determined what you used.
As such I have never had more than three personal bikes. Now just two each for the wife and myself.
They are nice bikes. The newest is an early Colnago Carbone of my wife’s. Next is her ‘92 Tesch Model 100 with Art Stump fork crown. My ‘83ish Tesch 100, Dave’s first 753 frame, built while was at Masi, and the Panasonic built for me by Takao Ono in 1973.
So my bike room is pretty small with emphasis on what racers needed most, spare wheels.



Tools are in my tech support travel box with a slide out for the Campy tool set.



Cabinets hold larger parts and less frequently used/spare tools. Smaller parts are in large tackle boxes with small compartment boxes for fasteners and PITA small bits.
Tubulars are hanging inside door left of bench.



Tools on the bench reside in bottom of the box.

Says the fellow who has made his storage and workshop as clean and organized as a museum.

Mostly because of limited space. Did have the advantage of having it tailored to what we had bike wise when it was built. I have a couple more benches that are similar and others that to put mildly are “not as orderly”.

I've been wanting to post on this thread, but the Atelier was a total mess until yesterday. 2 days of deep cleaning and organizing, here's the panoramic view.

Always a good and bad thing. If it was something you duplicated several times (me), because you stored several of the same piece in separate tucked away crevices!
